Reverend James Marron, C.S.Sp. of the Holy Spirit Fathers, was ordained in 1927. Beginning in 1928, he served a four-year mission in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.  

From 1968 to 1970, Marron served as Chaplain at Mercy Hospital in Bay City, Michigan. Afterward, he worked briefly in Ferndale, Michigan, before moving to St. Joseph Parish in Bay City, where he served from 1980 to 1986. 

Reverend Marron retired to Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, in 1986. He died a year later, on November 17, 1987.

In April 2019—after his death—the Saginaw Diocese included him on a list of clergy members with credible allegations of child sexual abuse documented against them.

At Sommers Schwartz, we’re committed to stopping sexual predators like Reverend Marron. Our firm has successfully prosecuted high-profile predators such as Dr. Larry Nassar—Michigan State University and USAG team physician—and Dr. Robert Anderson, who sexually abused students, athletes, and other patients for over thirty-five years at the University of Michigan. Today, we want to help you, too.

If you’re a survivor of ecclesiastical sexual abuse, contact Sommers Schwartz attorneys Lisa Esser-Weidenfeller, Matthew Curtis, or Jay Yasso for a free consultation, and let us pursue your case with the compassion, empathy, and sensitivity your story deserves.
